Representatives from Cliveden of the National Trust are joined by program participants to present their findings from dialogue about the relevance and impact of Cliveden’s Revolutionary Germantown Festival and re-enactment of the Battle of Germantown. This event is part of Considering Re-enactments: The Battle of Germantown in the Light of 21st-Century Gun Violence and follows a series of round tables and community events. This facilitated, online discussion is open to the public and will explore next steps.
Cliveden is the site of the 1777 Battle of Germantown and serves as host and organizer of the Revolutionary Germantown Festival, which annually features two battle re-enactments on its grounds in the first weekend of October.
